AdTech Photonics, in collaboration with the Center for Advanced Studies in Photonics Research (CASPR) at UMBC, is pleased to submit this Phase II proposal entitled “High-Performance, Radiation-Hard, 2-D, Near-Infrared, Avalanche Photodiode Arrays” in response to NASA STTR 2004 program solicitation topics: T4.01 Earth Science Sensors and Instruments and T4.02 Space Science Sensors and Instruments. Our goal is to develop high performance avalanche photodiodes (APDs) and arrays with high sensitivity in the 1.06 m and the near-infrared 1-1.6 m wavelength ranges, which will be used in various NASA applications including interplanetary free space communications, remote sensing, 3-D lidar atmospheric, terrain, and vegetation studies from airborne, UAV, balloon, and space-borne platforms. All these applications will benefit from the improved sensitivity, photon counting rate, and radiation hardness, which will result from this research project.
